As part of the ongoing Maninagar Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan North America Community Service Initiative in honor of His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree's 75th Manifestation Day Celebrations (Sadbhav Amrut Parva), the disciples in New Jersey organized a blood drive in coordination with the New York Blood Center on Sunday, July 9, 2017, which was also the auspicious day of Gurupoonam. Disciples as well as members of the local Secaucus community all came out to donate the gift of life to those in need. A total fifty-seven donors participated, and twenty-five units of blood were collected at the blood drive. There were blood drives also held in Florida and Maninagar, India on this same day.
